Rainbows appeared and disappeared in the mist thrown up by the Sea Screamer, the water stinging my eyes and leaving the taste of salt in my mouth as the captain of the 70' boat piloted the craft through various turns in the bay area off Panama City Beach. The first mate entertained the guests by firing a signal-cannon at unsuspecting beach goers, and later diving for sand dollars. Seeming to understand the driving force behind the economy of places like Panama City, dolphins surfed the wake of the boat, breaking the surface of the water on occasion to perform aquatic tricks for the tourists.

It was magical.

If you're looking for a great vacation spot, I recommend Panama City Beach, Florida. We had a great time there. And if you want to see dolphins and get a great tour of the bay, I recommend The Sea Screamer.
